The first disc contains episodes 1-4 and these episodes pretty much introduce all of the main characters of the series. The main characters: Yuichi, Nayuki, Ayu, Shiori, Makoto, and Mai. Of course you are also introduced to side characters as well. In this disc you get to know about Yuichi and a brief history about his past with Ayu. We get to see Yuichi interacting with people whom he has met before but doesn't remember as well as meeting with people for the very first time. Pretty much that describes the first volume, since the story is mostly revolving around Yuichi as he adjusts to the place where he used to live 7 years ago. This anime falls most likely in the school life, drama, slice of life and supernatural genre, though it can be considered "harem" as well. The animation is simply stunning and the music is beautifully composed. The voice acting is great for both Japanese dub and English dub (though I prefer Japanese dub).
I highly recommend this to anyone, particularly those who are fans of anime. Recommended for any age, though I would put it at 12+.
Without rehashing 2002, I'll just focus on the 2006 series and first four episodes in this review.
"Kanon" is an anime series that focuses on the main character Aizawa Yuichi, returning to a town that he visited quite often as a child.
The cold, snowy town tends to bring him flashes of memories and makes him wonder why has he forgotten a lot of his memories from seven years ago.
He stays with his aunt Akiko and his cousin Nayuki (who is very excited to have her cousin stay with the family).
Yuichi's character seems to be a nice but a bit blunt person. In other words, he's a nice guy most of the time but also, he has a side of him that can be a bit stand-offish.
In the first volume of "Kanon" (episodes 1-4), we are introduced to several characters. The first establishes the relationship between cousins Yuichi and Nayuki.
The second introduces us to a short girl named Ayu who runs into Yuichi because she somehow forgets to pay for her Taiyaki (a pastry made from something like pancake or waffle batter and is shaped and looks like a fish but it's filled with different types of cream like cheese or custard or bean paste). You learn that Ayu and Yuichi have met each other when they were younger seven years ago and if anything, the two are almost like siblings by the way the argue with each other but at the same time, both enjoy each other's company.Read more ›
